Soon after releasing OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and Apple's new Photos app for both laptops and desktops, the Cupertino company unleashes a software update for its mobile devices. Apple iOS 8.3 runs on iPhones, iPads, as well as iPod touch devices. Public beta availability started last month, and now the final release is out.

Apple iOS 8.3 comes with multiple fixes and tweaks as usual, but it also adds redesigned emojis (over 300 new characters and 32 country flags) and the ability to report junk messages in the Message app. The official changelog includes the following highlights:

  • Improved performance for app launch and responsiveness, messages, WiFi, Control Center, Safari tabs, keyboards
  • WiFi and Bluetooth fixes
  • Family Sharing fixes
  • Additional languages and country support for Siri (Danish, Russian, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and more)
  • Improved reliability of install/update for enterprise features

Given the fact that iOS 8.3 looks like a major maintenance update, the download size can go even near 1.5 GB, but this usually happens to the public beta participants. Most others should get downloads around 300 MB.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
